These Are Days

Blessed & lucky.
Lola, Big Trees, 2013

Some people are rejuvenated by the ocean, the sea air. Although lovely, to be sure, I'm moved more by the mountains and the trees. For our wedding anniversary this year, we took a day off and made a run for the hills. A simple picnic and a long walk with the dogs at Big Trees. Incredibly beautiful always, this time of year Mother Nature really puts on a show, we felt so lucky to be among the trees and trails in their autumn grandeur.

Afterwards, a cold beer and a pizza at Snowshoe Brewing Company with the pups using their best smiles and most dignified looks to beg little bites of crust. We're total suckers for these faces.

I'm looking forward to another trip up soon after the rains start for yet another incarnation of that gorgeous forest and those magnificent trees.

Wishing you a wondrous weekend.

Happy anniversary, sweetie! Your day sounded as lovely as your photos! I also love the trees, and the woods, and like you said, this time of year it's all so spectacular. I don't think I've ever seen such cute poochie faces! xoxo

Sounds like the perfect celebration. And, I don't know if you know this, but I have mountains and trees at my house... you should visit!
